I don't think the A/C will cause overheating. I actually cut mine off my 95 Civic when the compressor clutch failed. It my friend still has the car without the belt. Just no A/C
His '95 Civic had two accessory belts. Older D series motors which I think were last produced in 2005 had one belt for the A/C, and one driving the alternator and water pump.
Newer K series replaced the D, and those have serpentine belts. One belt drives all accessories.
